Read this one: It’s about over-crowding the space of your mind and rendering it inoperative

“Don’t give me more information. My mind is full. I can’t accept more messages. I have to tune out.”

This is about a psychological operation that, lately, has risen to new heights—the over-crowding of the mind.

I’m talking about the efforts of mainstream news to invent a new “scandal” every day, based on the smallest detail. Trump misspelled a word in a tweet. It could be a secret code. Somebody on Trump’s team talked on the phone with a Russian: treason.

There are twitter battles about which political side has the upper hand in the war between the Left and “Alt.-right.”

Now add in news about terror attacks.

People’s minds are pumped full, and the result is: “I can’t think about anything else. Don’t give me anything else to read or look at. Don’t give me deep analysis—I don’t have the ability to process it. I’m overwhelmed. I have to tune out.”

This effect is being taken to new levels, and as a result, IQ is dropping. Logical capacity is being swamped. The natural desire to get smarter and sharper is diminishing.

The very capacity to put events in a deeper overall perspective—which is exactly what people need—is placed on hold, is jammed up.

In my 35 years as a reporter, I’ve been through this many times. I research an area, and the data are a mess. They’re jumbled and out of order, and filled with lies and half-truths. I’ve learned what it takes to get to the bottom of things, and I can tell you—IT’S WORTH IT.

This is why I keep writing about logic and the need for it. This is why I keep giving readers the news behind the news. This is why I write about how complex systems can become a massive distraction when they exceed common sense and trap the mind.

Reducing the rationality of the individual is the path to futility and surrender. We have to go the other way. The individual’s ability to analyze information in the age of disinformation is primary, vital, and liberating. It always was; and this is a time where it is being tested.

There is the temptation to oversimplify writing and analysis—don’t write a thousand words, shave it down to two hundred, do it all in a tweet. But that’s nonsense. It doesn’t work. Not if empowering people with truth is the goal. And that is the goal.

A person should be proud of his capacity to follow a line of thought and reasoning. He should increase that capacity. He should want to be smarter, always.

No matter what is happening around him.

That effort pays off in clarity. Inessential information falls by the wayside. The space of the mind opens up. Individual power trends upward. This is a good thing.

Now, more than ever.

    Oh, I read every one anyway, Thank You so very much for writing em!

    Depends a lot on one’s native capacity for addressing a high volume of info at high speed, no?

    Some suck the firehose with glee, while most sip best from a gentle stream in the garden.

  3. truth1 says:

    I think all intelligent people learn that some stuff is not worth pursuing, and other stuff is. We need to be able to filter. This is not the same as shutting off all incoming data. Even the brain when we are new born, filters data. When our subconscious goes to work for us, it filters ideas and data, too.Its a natural and important process.

    George Carlin Exposing the media, the government ect.

    I’m going to echo Jon on the benefits of logical thinking. I got my start when Ayn Rand was popular. Life got easier as I got older. And it still does.

    As I expanded my learning on a popular subject, I knew I hit paydirt when I found a simple nugget of logical truth that a child could understand. Some examples:
    Medicine: can’t build health by being poisoned.
    Global Warming: cold air by any name cannot trap warm air. Heat flows from hot to cold.
    God: a being that exists without energy means it doesn’t exist.
    Fiat currency: a monetary system built on debt cannot stand.
    Solar phobia: if the sun was harmful, we wouldn’t have bare skin.
    Taxes: based on the assumption wealth is built by stealing from ourselves.
    Politics: the expectation politicians know better than we do what’s best for us.

    It took me decades to dig through piles of manure to get to insights like those. Many of them weren’t mine. But I recognized them when I saw them.

    It continues to bother me to think of all the needless human suffering because people won’t think.

  6. Maybe the most important article you’ve written Jon. MSM is propaganda, it is Thought Control. If you constantly are consuming the thoughts of others, which is what ALL media is, then you never have time to ‘think’ for yourself. You are constantly ‘reacting’ to what you consume. If all we do is react then we are controlled by those we react to. Turn off your TVs, switch off the radio, put down your smartphone. All are extremely effective thought control devices. And knowing this fact does not make one immune from their effects if you continue to expose yourself to them.

    Be still and know.

    Those that focus on the “packaging” rarely see the value of information,
